Local celebrity Tony Hadley stepped in last week to ensure a Singaporean quizzer won the money he was entitled to on a radio show.
When Singaporean man Muhammad Shalehan was denied the $10,000 prize (£5,760; US$7,060), the Spandau Ballet singer sent a video of support.
But the radio station remained adamant Mr Shalehan was wrong – until now.
On Friday, Gold 905 said they were “deeply sorry” and awarded the money.
Players had to identify 14 celebrities, each saying one word of the phrase: “Gold 9-0-5, the station that sounds good, and makes you feel good.”
It was hard to identify even one celebrity – let alone 14. But, by listening to other people’s answers, listeners could – over a number of weeks – piece the puzzle together.
Mr Shalehan called hundreds of times, and made it through to air twice – but did not get the answer correct.
On 21 April, he finally thought he had all 14 answers – only to be told he scored 13.
But on 6 May, another caller said the exact same answers – and was awarded the $10,000.
When Mr Shalehan questioned the decision, the station said he had mispronounced Tony Hadley on 21 April
Mr Shalehan decided to take it further who found Tony’s manager online and Tony responded with this video.
